Tomb Raider Trailer Image

The reboot of ‘Tomb Raider‘ has finally released it’s first trailer! Directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave), the trailer seems to focus heavily on the action. It’s really something that feels more akin to the more recent, action packed Tomb raider video games, rather than her early ones. The casting of Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) seems akin to this new direction, as the film follows a younger Laura Croft this time around.

Here’s the first official trailer:

Written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel), the reboot also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu. Surely Warner Brothers is hoping that this film will be the start of a new franchise, but the trio of Vikander, Robertson-Dworet, and Uthaug all prove to be untested when it comes to these types of movies. So it’ll be interesting to see how this film plays out when it’s released.

Tomb Raider’ opens in theaters on March 16, 2018.

Here’s the official synopsis and poster for ‘Tomb Raider’:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
